Shirley Woolham (CEO of Minster Law)

LEADING insurance legal services firm Minster Law has announced plans to extend their jurisdictional capability with the launch of sister-company, Glasgow-based Minster Law Scotland.

Marina Harper has been appointed as Executive Director of the new Scottish business. Marina brings a wealth of knowledge to the role, with over 17 years of experience in personal injury law exclusively in the Scottish market, alongside a deep understanding of the regulatory environment.

Speaking about her appointment Harper commented: “It’s great to be joining Minster Law Scotland and heading up this new Scottish business. Minster is recognised as one of the most contemporary, forward-thinking PI law firms in the UK market.” 

To be at the forefront of bringing their outcome-driven approach to Scottish clients and supporting some of the most prestigious brands in the motor insurance market is an exciting prospect.”

Minster Law Scotland will operate out of new offices located in the centre of Glasgow. Harper added: “Glasgow has a thriving legal services sector and our decision to have a presence here was driven by our desire to build a team made up of the very best talent in the Scottish personal injury market.

Through our partnerships with major UK motor insurance providers, we will be serving clients the length and breadth of Scotland, so we’re keen to speak to experienced personal injury solicitors/paralegals looking for a fresh challenge, with the opportunity to join one of the most respected personal injury law firms in the UK.

Of course, Glasgow also operates as a vibrant hub for many of those major UK insurers and brokers – so it’s the ideal location from which to serve the needs of both our clients and business partners.”

Speaking about the company’s plans for Minster Law Scotland, Shirley Woolham, CEO of Minster Law said: “We’re a business that prides itself on listening to the needs of our customer and business partners. The decision to create a Scottish operation has been made in direct response to those needs and I’m delighted the business has chosen Glasgow as its base and that we have been able to attract someone of the calibre of Marina.

“Our new Scottish capability will bring an additional and important dimension to our proposition for UK insurers and brokers and underlines our continuing commitment to the insurance-led RTA personal injury market. The new business will mirror our cohesive values-driven approach to legal services and I’m confident will play a big part in driving our continued success.”
